We’re just back from a short trip to Wales. I have a lot of images to upload but thought I’d start with the most recent, from last night. We found a super sunset spot for Lilly, our camper van, looking over Freshwater West beach, Pembrokeshire. I was so busy looking West that I almost didn’t notice a rainbow appearing behind us.
It just got better and better as the setting sun turned the clouds pink. By the end, I’d had a good soaking (well, you can’t have rainbows without rain) and I was very glad of my camera’s weather seals. We loved what we saw of Glamorgan and Pembrokeshire and have already agreed to go back as soon as we can.
By the way, the small triangular structure in the first shot is a seaweed drying hut. More on that anon.
Fabulous images and I love your camper van! So fun!!!
Thanks! We love her too. 🙂
love the van – and 16mm interesting just spoke with Chillbrook about his 12-24mm lens which I would like for my property work and the perspective angle as he like you posted landscapes at 14mm.
Hi Scott. Thanks. I can’t remember if you have a full frame body or not? I use a full frame so 16mm is the same as the 35mm equivalent. 12mm would be very wide on a full frame! For my cropped sensor camera, I use Sigma’s 10-20mm lens.
Yes just moved to FX camera
Thank you, Gill.
Lilly is a real beaut! Love the pictures Rachael. This is one of my favourite places, the Pembrokeshire coast is so beautiful.
Thanks. It really is – we will be back!
My favourite part of Wales. I was in Pembrokeshire a couple of years ago, in Saundersfoot and along the coast there. Gorgeous coastline.
Fab shot of Lily! Looks like you got the perfect moment with the rainbow in the background.
Thanks. We stayed in Saundersfoot for two nights! Love it there.
Oh awesome! The house we rented was right at the top of the hill. We went for a day long walk along the cliffs then had to climb that epic hill back home. What a slog!
The beach in Saundersfoot is stunning.
We were at the St Bride’s Spa hotel. We walked along the beach for miles and then back on the coast path. Stunning. 🙂
The coastal path is fantastic. Loved walking through the cliffs and all sorts.
I too use the Sigma 10-20mm. Nice lens, and I should use it more often.
And nice shots . . . however, I be wanting to know about the van (make, model, year, and internal layout.
1976 Bay. And more will be revealed in due course… 😉
Love the green and blue, the contrast is so beautiful….awesome pics
Your photos are stunning! Is there a way to get email updates of your new posts?
Thanks. Try following my blog – usually works!
Wow! The rainbow is just the icing on the cake. Your van reminds me of ours way back in prehistoric times. 😀 They sure do make wandering a whole lot more fun!
You…have a VW camper van!!! Oh the memories. We had not one but TWO of them growing up. Many a fun time — and many a rainbow — was enjoyed from within and without the rusty red walls of those tvehicles. Your green one there is looking much nicer.
Superb captures on the rainbows. Especially the composition with the van. Exquisite color.
PS – You’ll never guess what my first car was. Sunshine — yes, and even rainbows — came out of its tailpipe. You’d never know by the look of it. (http://wp.me/p28k6D-yf)
Lily looks in great condition, looking forward to seeing the rest of the shots from such a beautiful part of the world.
